Canteen’s all-day menu draws inspiration from simple recipes using fresh ingredients. Chef-prepared offerings range from housemade soups and sandwiches to hearty salads and oven-baked flatbread. Throughout the day, Canteen’s grab & go counter serves up freshly baked goods, sandwiches, and light bites.
Canteen’s bright, open space features modern decor with a casual feel – the perfect setting to enjoy fresh and innovative fare. Guests can also people-watch from Canteen’s large streetside patio during the summer months. Canteen’s marketplace atmosphere, together with quick, cheerful service, makes it the perfect destination, morning, noon, and night.
Our server was absolutely delightful! Our food was well prepared and well presented. Always a great location for lunch!
We have been going to Canteen for several years. This is the second time that we were disappointed. First, I received a drink and after finishing half of it, I asked my server if it was really my beer. The response was
"Oh, I guess we made a mistake." Next, when the food arrived, there was a long brown hair sitting on the food and plate. Of course, the staff returned the food to the kitchen. It was too late to get something else to eat, since we were going to a show and made do with a fast soup. Asked for bread....that too was forgotten by the server. Just too many unforgettable errors to return again.
Love the vegan options. Our server was excellent and helped us make informed choices.
Natasha, our server, was helpful and efficient with a lovely manner—fantastic! Best service!

Perfect spot for pre-theatre dining. Great food, good value on wines!
Hi Kooka, Thank you for the positive review! We look forward having you again at the restaurant! Regards, The Management
My portion of pad Thai was small for what I paid., especially in comparison to a Thai restaurant. It was enough for me but I am not a big eater. It would definitely not have been large enough for a man.
We have always had great service (knowledgeable, caring) service at Canteen. The food is delicious and thoughtfully presented.
Good food made with fresh ingredients. Portions were just right for me but some may think they are a little on the small side.
Nice menu, very accessible. Really lovely spot. This is our go to pre theatre.
Hi Stacey, Thank you for the positive review! We look forward having you again at the restaurant! Regards, The Management
I come here a lot. It is one of my favourite restaurants in the entertainment district. Go there when I have theatre or film night. I have taken lots of friends too. Love half price bottles of wine nights.
Hi Rachel, Thank you for the review! We look forward having you again at the restaurant! Regards, The Management
Food prices are going up so suggest some specials for lunch and a prix fixe....makes it more attractive and valued in a very competitive market. We may have stayed for coffee and dessert if it was part of a set price for example. But lunch per person at $40/ is just too high.
Great restaurant but very loud.
Food was awesome as were the servers. Wine recommendation was spot on.
Hi Zoe, Thank you for the review! We will make sure we will discuss your feedback to the entire team! We look forward having you again at the restaurant! Regards, The Management
Great hamburger/frites and steak salad. Easy to substitute the Caesar salad for the green offered. Attentive, appropriate service. Busy place, lots of business lunches and pre theatre diners.
Hi Terri, Thank you for the wonderful review! We look forward having you again at the restaurant! Regards, The Management
The food good but didn’t taste good. Too peppery or lacked taste.
Avocado toast was an great choice shared by two followed by steak/ frites and steak salad also shared as far as the sides. Tender, perfectly cooked, lovely plating. And a superlative server Adam. Plus Thursday is half price on wine bottles!
Hi, Thank you so much for the positive review! We look forward having you again with us! Regards, The Management
The O&B was unusually busy for a Sunday evening - the server was outstanding at balancing customer needs and getting folk to various theatre and movie events. The food was excellent and the ambience was lovely.
Hi Heather, Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! We look forward in having you again at the restaurant. Regards, The Management
My husband's Avocado Toast looked delicious; my Canteen Breakfast was so-so as the plate cooled off quickly and the has browns were re-fried. Our waitress was super though and we had a nice table that tucked us into a corner.
Hi, we had brunch. Eggs benny two different ways. The dishes were very tasty but well on the way to cold. We ate them as we could not see our server for a few minutes. The service was terrific on the whole. I will give Canteen another try as I like the menus and maybe this was a one time problem.
Canteen cancel my appointment!!!! left me stranded, I was a faithful customer for years!, unfair and ungentlemanly of you
We did give you a call a week before your reservation to help assist you with making a reservation elsewhere due to the Halloween event going on in the building. We were able to make a reservation elsewhere for you and we thought this was helpful. We do apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patronage. We hope to see you for future visits.
O&B is our goto restaurant before we attend Mirvish productions - the menu has a variety of different options, everything is always delicious and the pricing is reasonable. Service is always great - they understand that you have a limited amount of time and make sure you are out in plenty of time to see the show.
Hi Linda! Thank you so much for the positive review! We look forward to your next visit with us! Regards, The Management
I’ve been coming here since it opened and am very disappointed with the direction of the restaurant. The menu has pivoted in a way where there’s little of interest and the quality of food has declined significantly.
Hi! Thank you for the comment. We apologize for having not met your dining expectations with us. We will discuss this to the entire team so we can improve for the better! Regards, The Management
Great place for a business meeting in late afternoon. Quiet and lots of natural light. Would recommend for coffee and quick dessert in late afternoon with friends or just to meet up with business clients.
Hi! Thank you so much for the positive feedback! We look forward having you with us in the restaurant again! Regards, The Management
Great location close to theatre. We were served promptly and had time to enjoy our meal and make it to our show on time. Server was very pleasant and friendly. The breakfast sandwich and homefries were great!
Hi Greg, Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We look forward having you again at the restaurant! Regards, The Management
We had a lovely server who went out of her way to ensure that my friend's dietary restrictions were looked after. The food was excellent, healthy and very hot when it arrived at the table. We weren't rushed out of the restaurant even after we had finished our meal and were able to linger and catch up before heading to a show. The restaurant ambiance was upscale but not stuffy. Excellent washrooms! We will be back!
Hi Jen, Thank you so much for the very nice review! We look forward having you again at the restaurant! Regards, The Management
It was great. Service awesome and food just what we wanted
Hi Sue, Thank you so much for the positive review! We look forward in having you again at the restaurant! Regards, The Management
Perfect pre theatre dinner spot. Casual, fun and reliably good food.
Hi Larry, Thank you for the positive review! We look forward in having you again at the restaurant! Regards, the Management
Great quick bite before a show. Lots of vegetarian option, great service. Will be back!
Hi! Thank you so much for the positive review! We look forward in having you again in our restaurant! Regards, the Management
The ambiance was good, but the food quality was quite average. I ordered the spaghetti dish and no one brought a spoon or offered cheese or anything. Not sure what is change over there but it was worse than my prior experiences.
Perfect place to eat before the theatre. Appropriate menu and good service
Hi there! Thank you so much for the positive review! We look forward having you again at the restaurant! Regards, The Management
Everytime we have been to the Canteen or any other OB restaurant it has been a fantastic experience. The staff is extremely pleasant. The food well there is not enough room to write down the excellent I mean EXCELLENT!! food that you have during your experience at either of the OB restaurants. Thankyou again OB and the Canteen for a memorable afternoon pre show lunch.
Hi! Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are very glad that you had an excellent dining experience with us! We look forward having you again in our restaurant! Regards, The Management
A quiet night for the district since the theatres were dark or empty and there were no sporting events. Plus Thursday’s is half price for bottles of wine. This was just a pre concert meal so no appetizers and we were grateful our mains arrived in short order - grilled octopus salad and beef short rib, both done to perfection. Happily we were able to squeeze in dessert - carrot cake - because a little wine remained!
Hi Glen! Thank you so much for the positive review! We look forward having you again in the restaurant! Regards, The Management
Convenient spot for TBLB movie goers. Food selection was good with lots of GF choices. Unfortunately soup was scalding hot.
I had the beet burger and it was amazing! I’ll keep eating there just for that!! Food is usually very good there but in the past I have it very crowded and noisy, difficult for conversation. However not dining at peak times is a better choice if you can do the ambience is quieter. Nice to be able to eat on the patio - quiet and spacious. I’m happy to see so many restaurants setting a more environmentally responsible example using paper straws. It would be nice if O & B did the same.
Hi Linda, Thank you for the positive review! We look forward to having you again at the restaurant! Regarding the straws, we use biodegradable ones. They are environment friendly and we are glad that our guests appreciate them! Regards, The Management
My second time there at it did not disappoint! This time I had brunch and the cod benedict was out of this world!
Hi! Thank you so much for the positive feedback! We look forward to having you again at the restaurant! Regards, The Management
The food was subpar. Frozen burgers, over cooked rice, weak lemonade and flat in-house carbonated water. Service was slow and the waiter didn’t come to check on drinks or meal satisfaction. To top it all off the bathroom was so filthy that we decided not to use it. We will avoid this restaurant at all costs in the future. O&B brand is really failing here.
It was quick and easy and did the job before the show. The food was good and met expectations.
Hi Smith, Thank you so much for the positive review! We are glad to know that we have met your dining expectations! We look forward to having you again at the restaurant! Regards, The Management
Proximity to the theater was great. We weren’t offered a kids menu, and only noticed after we had ordered that there was one available as we had seen it brought to another table. I ordered steak frites as I knew this was something I could easily share with my son, and the steak was tough. We were a long time to get drinks, and the bill even though it wasn’t busy at all. I’ve been to many O&B restaurants and had a very enjoyable time, but this was my first time at Canteen and won’t likely return.
Had another lovely Sunday brunch. Service is always good!!! Food excellent.
Hi! Thank you so much for the positive feedback! We look forward in having you again with us! Regards, The Management
My burger was under cooked, pretty much raw in some places, but other than that totally amazing
Canteen always has a limited menu, but we always find really tasty things to eat! It's a great place to have a bit before or after a movie.
